IIRC RQ3 has "sweep attack" as an option for big creatures. When I was
running DragonLance under RQ3 I used to allow it for PCs with 2h slashing or
crushing weapons where the attacker hit and did knockback. A more
restrictive option would be to allow it if using a 2H weapon and you just
severed a location.
